Course schedule

Session 1

Prevent Burnout for Managers

While middle managers are one of the most populous roles within many organizations, they are also one of the most prone to burnout. Recent research indicates that managers often describe themselves as lost, torn between multiple forces, isolated, and lonely. In this workshop, participants will take a deep dive into the experience of burnout, loneliness, and isolation specifically as it relates to being a middle manager. Participants will gain insight in organizational and interpersonal challenges middle managers face and create an individualized toolkit of practical solutions and actionable mindsets to navigate their own experience of burnout.

Session 2

Performance Management: Fundamental Skills

This science-backed workshop explores the nuts-and-bolts of performance management with a focus on defining, planning and supervising goals that hit the sweet spot of challenging and doable (eustress). Participants will also learn frameworks for conducting effective performance reviews. Together with our other courses on managing teams such as Coaching for Managers and Giving and Receiving Feedback, this class rounds out a holistic approach to managing teams for performance and development.

Session 3

Lead Inclusive Teams

Embark on a transformative journey with Lead Inclusive Teams: Create a Mindset of We vs. Me. Explore actionable strategies that steer diverse teams toward a shared culture of belonging. Beyond mere information, our approach is an engaging experience deeply rooted in contemporary research and best-practices. Crafted for immediate application in your workplace, this engaging session empowers you to cultivate an inclusive mindset that not only understands diversity but actively fosters it.

Session 4

Build Trust with Your Team

Trust is an essential component of leadership that can be challenging to build and easy to lose. We’ve built this class around six key traits of trust, the THREAD model: together, honest, resourceful, empowering, approachable, and dependable. In this course, you will discover where you need to grow and which traits to develop. You will learn actionable steps for becoming a more trustworthy leader. And you will learn what to watch out for when applying these key traits.

Session 5

Make High-Quality Decisions

This course is for those who make important decisions. It is ideal for situations when you have time, resources, and the ability to aggregate multiple and, hopefully, differing points of view to arrive at the best possible decision. Easy to say, hard to do. Because all of us have a natural and automatic tendency to jump to conclusions, this class is meant to help you temper the rush to judgment with specific, actionable models that balance the benefits of clear-eyed deliberation with our equally beneficial faculty of human insight and intuition.
